Description
Cast: Lane Carroll, W.G. McMillan, Lynn Lowry As a small town is accidentally exposed to a biological weapon that turns people into homicidal maniacs, an unprepared U.S Army swoops in to quarantine and control the damage. Mixing elements of his Night of the Living Dead with The Andromeda Strain, Dr. Strangelove and M*A*S*H, Romero’s breakneck-paced, full-color, bleakly comic sci-fi thriller doubles down on both social commentary and political satire.
